Turn key forward listen for the fuel pump to pressurize if you don't here anything then your fuel pump needs replaced and it's in the tank.

No not the fuel pump. You most likely need to do a tune uo. New spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter. Deffinently change out the spark plugs. I would suggest using autocraft, autolite (fords brand} or some densos or ngk for better performance. Hope this solves your problem.

Have to spray starter fluid in the intake to get to start. once started runs fine, why?


This sounds like a weak fuelpump, and take a while to build up pressure, the starting fluid get the engine running until the pump builds up pressure, i would have the fuel pressure tested and i think you will find that its bad. good day.

If your starter don't do anything (crank) like a dead battery, then its going to be your starter, if it cranks but don't start the engine, then it could be your eec relay.

It might be your anti-theft alarm system. When the car doesn't start, is there a ticking sound inside the car? If so, hit the unlock button a few times on your keyless entry remote, until the ticking stops, then try to start the car. Hopefully this helps.

My truck turns over, but wont start unless I spray starter fulid. What could be the problem?


Could be blocked fuel filter or fuel pum, does it keep running once you stop spraying the starter fluid, Try also cleaning out the throttle that could be restricting the mix.
